Gravel Roads During Harvest Period

Recommended 80KPH limit until 31 December 2020

Owing to the extended dry conditions and harvest season underway, there are sections of gravel roads in the Shire that are already struggling under the weight and volume of frequent, fast moving heavy vehicles.

These roads are deteriorating very quickly, despite the best efforts of our Roads Crew to keep them graded and up to scratch.

We've also been advised of a few near misses and have concerns for motorist safety.

Please note there is now a recommended 80kph speed limit imposed on all Shire gravel roads until 31 December.

In the meantime, we will continue to do our best to keep them graded and in smooth, safe condition.

We would like to thank the community for your road reports so far and ask that you keep them coming.

Any road standard issues please contact Craig Elefsen, Manager Infrastructure Services, on 0448 089 092 or 9890 2500, or shire@lakegrace.wa.gov.au.
